Hunger: A Global Challenge

Even in a world of abundance, over 800 million people across the world still suffer the effects of hunger. It is a problem that continues to cripple the lives and threaten the futures of many communities.

When people are starving, their lives stop. They feel ill at all times with very low energy levels, they cannot function, they cannot work to support their families and they soon fall prey to extreme poverty.

At 麻豆色情片, we have witnessed the destructive
and heartbreaking impact hunger can have on the lives of the most vulnerable communities, and so our work addresses this bitter reality.

From food aid distributions to victims of conflicts and famine to enabling communities to feed themselves over the long-term, we approach the complicated issues related to hunger in a practical way.

Tackling Hunger with Sustainable Solutions

The ongoing pandemic has severely impacted those who were already vulnerable.

Take Khadeeja (pictured left), an elderly woman who聽earns money for her family by begging on the streets of Sri Lanka.

She collects a mere 66p per day and this daily feat is a huge struggle. Khadeeja suffers from blindness in her right eye, high blood pressure and diabetes. She is the sole breadwinner for her disabled, widowed daughter and her orphaned grandson.

People like Khadeeja are barely surviving. They hike miles to access clean water, live in overcrowded conditions and can't afford the most basic healthcare. Already struggling to survive, how can they cope with the economic consequences of the global coronavirus crisis?

At 麻豆色情片, we believe that, as well as distributing emergency food to people like Khadeeja, it is imperative to provide families with sustainable food and income, so we can truly reach a world with zero hunger.
